This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "Good game of tennis. It took us 2hrs to complete. Lots of rallies, lots of deuces (I lost count of the deuces in the penultimate game in the second set). So lots of close games. Both set could have gone either way. We saw lots of swings in the match as well. Richard was 3-0 up in the second set before I started building momentum. There was a bit of sunshine at the beginning for the Match and then the wind started and at 4-3 in the second set the rain started. But we managed to still complete the match. Thoroughly enjoyed the game. Thanks Richard. "  -- Lateef

Player Comments:

  • "I wanted to play more from baseline this time and serve was going well in the first set. Chris started making more returns and playing better to win the second set easily. We had different scores in the third set, whereas I thought to have lost the match 4-6 Chris believed the score was 5-5, which good fairplay by him he wanted to keep playing and was unlucky to lose in the end. Seems to be always close 3 sets against Chris, enjoyed the match, thanks."  -- Carsten

Each of us had some incredible winning plays including aces and tricky balls near the net. Really enjoyable game, thanks for cycling all the way to Eltham for the match.

Mikolaj, thanks for booking the court, I laughed when you said how much time you booked, but we needed all of it to complete our many long competitive rallys. And thanks for getting in the ice-creams at the end of the match, after that marathon it tasted ever so sweet! - Look forward to the rematch! "  -- Tim

In second part both of us made more unforced errors possibly due to the hot weather when the match was played (hard to believe saying that about a match in mid September!).
